ISLAMABAD, May 5: The government has ordered to maintain status quo in the affairs of the Sost Dry Port Trust. It, however, allowed the new management of the Trust to continue to run the port affairs till court decision expected on May 16.
This was decided at meeting held here on Monday at the Kashmir and Northern Areas Affairs Ministry under the chairmanship of the KANA Division Secretary Salman Siddiq.
This is being described as a victory for the new management of the Sost Dry Port Trust and the people of Hunza-Gojal.
The officials of Northern Areas administration, including chief secretary and deputy commissioner gave presentation about the issue, sources privy to the meeting told Dawn.
The former management team — Saleem Khan, Barkat Ali and Shabaz Khan — staged a walk out when they found themselves in a tight position and could not answer to the points raised at the meeting, the sources said.
They made unconvincing attempts to counter the arguments and reports of the local administration and the port’s new management.
